    Hq ls1

    Thought it about time that I put a thread up of my build.

    Putting an LS1 into the HQ to do skids and have fun. Will be a stock engine to start with, 4l60e and a hilux diff with 4.11's and full spool.

    Have ordered Prostars (6 months ago, never deal with VPW) and a hilux diff. Both should be here within the next 2 weeks.

    Changed the sump to rear hump using a F-Body sump from the states.

    Anyway no more talking and now pitures.

    Thanks. Paid I think about $1600 about 4 years ago from some guy that was desperate for money. Only thing that I have done is get the rear qtr fixed, lower it and paint the roof.

    I am doing the conversion myself I suppose you could say, but I am buying alot of parts of the self for it. Still tossing up about making the mounts or buying them. I will decide once the motor is resting in the bay.

    All that being said mine is not that good in the flesh. Looks alot better in photo's and it no matter what you do to a 35yr old car it still will turn like crap and not stop.

    I'd love to buy back my olds HQ GTS, but - then i'd want to LS1 and 6-speed it, probably not the best plan for an original.. there's plenty of copies anyway.
